      Answer

      No, this is a WD 'Green' drive. It is intended for storage. If you are looking for a primary or boot drive, this is not the best choice. It is designed to 'spin down' after a short period of non-use to conserve power. For a boot drive, look to the WD Black or Blue drives.

        You can purchase a cover for this and use it as an external usb, but this drive is designed to go inside of a computer tower. Why not just buy an external hdd

          should be. Make sure drive is formatted as GPT, or you'll only be able to access 2 terabytes.

        Will this drive work "good" paired with a MSI A88X-G45 Gaming Motherboard?   (5 Answers)

          It should work well. You might prefer getting a 7200 RPM drive just for the performance boost if you want to install Windows and programs on it. I use one for a backup drive. It works well in a USB drive enclosure and also when hooked up to the motherboard directly using the SATA III interface. Good Luck to you!
